Feedback in electronic systems

Intresting technique. I wonder if this method can be used in any system with feedback. I cant help but wonder about audio. The "space" to manipulate could be the wave's phase or ampletude.

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

Look at this silly stream of soap flowing on the surface of a bubble inside my soap jug.

You cannot achieve the impossible without attempting the absurd.

A Guide to Alternative Handwriting and Shorthand Systems

TIL: the IPA(international phonetic alphabet) is based on efforts of Alexandar Graham Bell's father.

Also short hand systems and the ipa have more in comon then I expected. Throughout comunication systems there is a common trade off between verbosity, speed, and complexity. This also has ties into linguistics comunication and information theory.

(Thread:) This is the reality of the fully commercialized mainstream internet: an indigestible mass of shortest-form opinions, purposefully selected by algorithms to agitate us on platforms that are designed to record and memorialize our most agitated, reflexive responses. t.co/PWMP31UcVA

I was just watching 10hours of train rides through norway (slowTV style) while listening to the interstellar soundtrack and it mashed up really well for a bit. so.... I scrolled back and recorded it.

If you're reading this...you've survived a lot. Good job.

Is there an open-source GUI fro Git that's designed for artists?
Something that'd show 3D model and texture previews instead of MD5 hashes when comparing binary files...

Copying ain't stealing,
sure as I'm breathing,
information wants to be free.

The mafia wants us to believe
youtube-dl was made for thieves.
In fact,
it was made for human beings.

We might listen to your pleas,
once you respect our machines,
they belong to us - not you.

DRM? EME?
Your drivers are mean,
your blobs illicit,
the hardware complicit,
and yet--
it's never stopped piracy.

The real caper is your crimes.
The theft of OUR public domain.
DMCA abuse, attacks on fair use.
Net neutrality and regulatory capture.

Sell it to us fair and square,
your terms are too much to bear,
and until you're playing fair,
fuck off!

Yo ho, yo ho. A pirate's life for me!

This is freaken awsome. This photo was taken May 28, 1906. Its stunning in its own right but the technical achievement is even more impressive. Before modern drone technology and modern computers. Im blown away.

1) Combined share of total US wealth held by everybody except the richest 10%, 1990-2020.

2) The share of US wealth held by *just* the top 1%, 1990-2020.

What it means: 10% of Americans control *70%* of national wealth. And the top 1% own more than the bottom 90% COMBINED. t.co/zItaLszuJc
